At his home WTCC race at Brands Hatch, triple World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx will take to the track at the wheel of a BMW Sauber F1 Team racing car to complete a series of demonstration laps.
This is not the first time that Priaulx will drive a BMW Sauber F1 Team car. The BMW works driver has been on duty on numerous occasions at the Pit Lane Park. Now he is looking forward to driving a Formula One car on a race stage for the first time - and in front of his home crowd.
"The WTCC at Brands Hatch promises to be another great weekend," says the reigning champion. "It's always a highlight for me to race in front of my home crowd and I'm looking forward to giving the fans something to cheer about, both in the WTCC races and the Formula One car."
Priaulx, who follows the BMW Sauber F1 Team's races keenly, is impressed by the success the team from Munich and Hinwil has enjoyed so far this season. "This is an amazing time for the BMW Sauber F1 Team," says the Brit. "To have the chance to show the fans a Formula One car at Brands Hatch is a real treat for me and for them. The noise will be phenomenal, and it promises to be a real spectacle."
The BMW V8 engine will roar into life at 14:00hrs local time (15:00hrs CET) on Saturday. Another spectacular drive by Priaulx will round off the race Sunday from 15:00hrs.Source BMW Sauber
